Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

A low carb pizza crust that’s made out of cauliflower! The trick- getting the cauliflower as DRY as possible!

Ingredients

  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/3-1/2 head of cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup parmesan
  • 1/8 pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Procedure

  • In a processor, blend up cauliflower florets. Steam cauliflower by placing in microwave in a bowl (you don’t need to add water or cover) and heat 7-8 minutes, stirring once. Allow to cool.
  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Place 2 cups of cauliflower rice in the center of a piece of cheesecloth or old dish towel (I used a dish towel, but make sure you use one you don’t care about as it will likely stretch out). Create a ball with the rice inside of the cloth and ring out the water. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP–IT WILL MAKE OR BREAK YOUR CRUST! You need to remove as much moisture as possible- continue to ring until water stops coming out of cloth.
  • Transfer to a bowl and mix will all other ingredients.
  • Spread out dough on a pizza pan, lined with parchment paper and sprayed.
  • Bake 9-12 minutes, until firm and cooked through. Remove from oven and add desired toppings (I used homemade pasta sauce, mozzarella, basil, zucchini, sautéed onions/garlic and turkey pepperoni!). Return to oven for another 5-7 minutes, until cheese is melted.
  • Slice and devour!
